TencentDB for SQL Server comes with a genuine Microsoft license and can be billed in a pay-as-you-go (postpaid) manner.
The price consists of two parts: instance specification (memory capacity) and storage space (disk capacity). For pricing details for different regions, please see Product Pricing.
Tencent Cloud can provide TencentDB instances with "license included". The price of a "license included" model includes a SQL Server software license, underlying hardware resources, and TencentDB management features, so you don't need to purchase a Microsoft SQL Server license separately.
With a "license included" database, you only need to pay for instance specifications and usage duration and don't have to worry about hardware and licensing costs. Therefore, you only pay low variable costs instead of high fixed costs, which helps you reduce IT costs.
Please read the refund description and policies before returning the instance.
